Sacha Baron Cohen Spy Comedy Grimsby Adds Mark Strong

They were looking for a Johnny Depp type and got Mark Strong. Close enough, maybe even an upgrade, I'd say.

Variety reports the British actor will play the super serious and James Bond-esque Black Ops agent forced to go on the run with his brother, Cohen's soccer hooligan, in Sony's upcoming spy comedy Grimbsy.

Louis Letterier will direct the film, which has already been set for a July 31st 2015 release.
